Re: Think VAR is bad in the Premier League?

Absolute joke. Once again highlights that even with VAR in place, we are at the whim of one person's (stupid) opinion.
Where's the common sense gone out of football?
What are we gaining from all this? Not much compared to what we are losing in terms of spontaneity.

Re: Transfer value of each burnley player

Those values have always been out. Plus the value of a player is what someone is willing to pay for him. We value Tarks at 50 million but no one has matched that offer as yet. Plus some players values can vary wildly, look at Traore at Wolves. They were talking 80 million last year, and this season ...
